An (Almost) Bloodless Fight - The Battle of Woodland Hills
Greetings Cosmic Americans!
This will probably be the last post regarding the Civil War reenactment I attended in Woodland Hills California back on May 14.
I write this post more as a question to the Civil War reenactors (or anyone, for that matter) who stop by from time to time. Now, I am not bashing reenactors, by any stretch. It just seemed curious, to me anyway, that there were so few reenacted casualties at this particular battle. Is this a common theme? I mean - the "lead" was flying and hardly anyone fell. Oh sure, after a while, a handful of Rebel and Federal dead lay about the field - but not until they had blazed away at each other for about twenty minutes.
I would really be interested in a little insight to this phenomenon - the conspicuous lack of reenacted death and wounding.
I hope you enjoy the video - it was indeed a spectacular day!
